We’re all guilty of over working and damaging our hair from impulsive color decisions and obsessive hair straightening. If your once shining and long locks have become dry and brittle, then it’s time to get back to natural beauty and show your hair some deserving love!
First things first, if you’ve been continuously bleaching your hair every two to three months – stop. Go back to your natural color (or as close as you can get) and keep it that way. Coloring your hair is probably the most damaging hair process of all the hair evils that exist. Instead of spending on highlights, invest some of that cash into deep conditioning treatments, which will help replenish some of your hair’s natural moisture that’s been lost. If you can go a few days without washing your hair, do it! This will greatly help to bring back those lost natural nutrients too. You’ll also want to keep up with getting your hair trimmed every four to six weeks. Even if you’re trying to grow your hair out, you should still stay between this range because healthy hair grows faster and stronger than damaged hair!
As far as styling goes, you should refrain from using hot tools, such as curling wands and straighteners as much as possible. Play around with fun braids or undo’s if you’re having a hard time accepting your natural hair simply as is. If you absolutely have to curl your hair, make sure to use a heat protectant spray. Even using a blow dryer and a round brush to add some waves to your hair can be less harmless than direct heat from a straightener or wand. Use this as an opportunity to get creative with hair and learn some new tricks!
Once your hair is back to its happy and healthy self, you may think differently about changing your hair color or manipulating the way it naturally falls. In fact, you may start to love your natural hair! After all, the color of your hair was given to you for a reason. Whether you have dark, medium, or light hair, it more than likely complements your complexion, eye color, and natural eyebrow shade perfectly. Who knows, when you go back to your natural hair color, you just might start receiving way more compliments on your gorgeous eyes!
